China Airlines to Open Seasonal Taipei–Melbourne–Christchurch Route


China Airlines will be expanding its Taiwan–Australia–New Zealand network this year, with the upcoming launch of a new seasonal route from Taipei to Melbourne, which will then continue to Christchurch. The new route follows the launch of the airline’s Taipei–Sydney–Christchurch route in December 2014.

The new service is set to start October 25 and will end on March 26, 2016. It will fly three times a week–every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday–although the carrier has yet to announce flight times. For this route, the airline will be operating an A330-300 aircraft, which accommodates 30 business seats and 277 economy seats.

Travelers can now enjoy an early bird deal offered by the airlines as it celebrates the upcoming launch, with economy class fares for the Taipei–Melbourne route starting at US$1,016 and Taipei–Christchurch tickets starting at US$1,224.
